I was having random hangs with emacs on my Windows XP Pro desktop. I traced
the problem to a bug in my keyboard driver. After logging out, when I log back
in I have to reset the repeat rate via Control Panel. I found that if I used a
constant cursor in emacs instead of the blinking cursor, then emacs worked
fine and stopped hanging. The line
(blink-cursor-mode 0) ; Constant cursor
in my .emacs file fixed my problem. Strange.
